In the two years prior to the Centering the Arts at Dartmouth theme, through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process, the DCF  provided funding to students, faculty, and staff interested in hosting a program based upon the DCF's theme. During the 2012-13 academic year the DCF teamed with the Year of the Arts' Steering Committee to expand funding. Over the course of the year the DCF and YOA Steering Committee provided funding for 18 events. They are listed below, by term, with links to the specific events as provided on the Year of the Arts website.
